When Schools and Parents Align
Attached is an excellent article written this past winter by Patrick Bassett, President of the National Association of Independent Schools. While some of it relates to choosing an independent school, much of it applies to most parent-school settings, private or public. Some of it is even about pre-school parenting.
I thought that perhaps the most intriguing point made by the author was his response to parents who say, "I just want my child to be happy." Another point that struck a chord is the one about "helicopter parents".
